She was loved. Condolences flooded the comments section of Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman’s Twitter post on Wednesday, June 26, after he confirmed his wife, Beth Chapman, died at age 51 following a battle with lung cancer.
“It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side,” Dog, 66, wrote, to which fans shared their support. Within two hours, the post garnered more than 20,000 well wishes.
Fellow reality stars Kim Zolciak and her daughter Brielle Biermann were among those to mourn the loss of Beth. “So heartbroken. RIP @MrsdogC We love you,” Zolciak tweeted. Biermann added: “So horrible 😫😔☹️ praying for her family … she was always so kind to us.”
“Beth’s faith in the Lord was amazing! She is a truly going to be missed! Love & 🙏🏼 to Dog and the rest of the family! May Jesus bring you comfort in this time. Stay strong together as a family. Beth loved u all with all her ❤️ and strength! She fought to live for all of you,” one commenter shared.
Another added: “My heart goes out to you and all the kids @MrsdogC we will miss you. I never understood why people get so upset for celebrities passing now I know cuz I idolized you so very much! I’m so sorry @DogBountyHunter please keep your faith up and always stay a good man like she wanted.”
Dog confirmed on Saturday, June 22, that Beth had been placed in a medically induced coma amid her cancer battle. The former reality star first opened up about her stage II throat cancer diagnosis in September 2017. Though she revealed two months later that she was cleared of the illness, Beth underwent emergency surgery in November 2018, and doctors discovered the cancer had returned and spread to her lungs.
